The 90s and early 2000s were absolutely filled with cartoony video game characters thanks to the popularity of characters like Mario and Sonic The Hedgehog. Some, like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon, did great! Others, like these 12, have pretty much already been forgotten.
A shirted bobcat with a Sonic-like attitude, Bubsy's best known for starring in two mediocre Super Nintendo platformers and one of the worst 3D games ever made for the original PlayStation. For some reason he's getting a revival soon.
Croc's two PlayStation adventures were actually decent games, but for whatever reason he just wasn't able to last as long as fellow PS1 characters Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.
Possibly one of the most 90s things you'll ever see, Rocky was a rodent with "ATTITUDE, DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!"
7-Up's official mascot during the 90s, Spot was literally the red dot from the 7-Up logo come to life. He got a few games throughout the decade, none of which were great, before ultimately disappearing with the advertising campaign.
Appearing twice on the ill-fated Sega Saturn console, Bug! was a Sonic ripoff that even had the nerve to appear on a console that already had Sonic.
